UKLA / Wiley-Blackwell Research in Literacy Education Award 2017 shortlist
The Award is given annually for papers published in each of UKLA’s journals – Literacy and Journal of Research in Reading (JRR) – judged to be exemplary in terms of criteria applied in both journals. Literacy and JRR are peer-reviewed journals with international reputations for excellence. The panel chair is Professor Jackie Marsh.
This UKLA project was planned in response to recurring evidence that suggests children in England continue to read less independently and find less pleasure in reading than many of their peers in other countries (Twist et al., 2003; 2007).
UKLA / Wiley-Blackwell Research in Literacy Education Award: Award Winner – Literacy 2013. This article argues for literacy as a specific form of communication, but concludes that broader models of literacies should be utilised to guide and support practitioners in developing interactive practice and in making reasoned and principled approaches and decisions about literacy practices, routes and progression for children with SLD.
